Some minor things have been changed since the last release of Gnome-Pie, so it was time to release a new version!
- New Feature: Added the possibility to assign hotkeys to combinations of mouse buttons and modifier keys. It’s now possible to open Pies with combinations such as Ctrl-RightButton.
- Improvement: The library “bamf” (which is used for matching icons to applications by the window-list slice-group) has been made an optional dependency. On systems where bamf is not available, it’s still possible to use Gnome-Pie. In most cases the icons chosen without bamf will be the same anyway.
- Improvement: The clock’s fingers of the Simple Clock theme do not disappear fully when a slice is active.
- Improvement: The preferences window now has the Gnome-Pie icon when it is present in the user’s icon theme.
- Improvement: Several translations have been updated.
- Bugfix: Improved modifier key managment. Activating a hotkey with a Slice is now possible even if the user holds down a modifier which is not part of the hotkey. Until now, when a user clicked on a Slice which simulates Ctrl-Z the desired action was not triggered when the user held the Alt while clicking. Doing this is possible now.
- Bugfix: Turbo mode works quite reliably again. There were certain conditions under which the turbo mode would not work as expected. Hopefully, most of the issues are fixed now.
Furthermore, Gnome-Pie’s PPA provides packages for Xenial and Yakkety now (in addition to Wily, Vivid and Trusty).
